Barbie gets everything. Really, it’s not fair. Sure, it’s her 50th birthday this year, but, jeez, she is getting the coolest presents! Besides a fashion show during New York Fashion week and a customized pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, Barbie also gets a collection of makeup by Stila. The limited edition series features four “Decades of Beauty” cans: #1 Ponytail Barbie from 1959, Malibu Barbie from 1971, Foxy Doll from 1980, and Jewel Doll from 2000. Stila also will launch a version of its talking palette with tips on how to get the “Barbie look.” The products will be at Sephora starting next month, though neither will make your boobs as big, your boyfriend as coiffed, or your house as pink as Barbie’s. Sigh. [WWD] Keep reading »

Barbie is turning 50 next year (doesn’t she look good for her age?), and her birthday celebration is going to be huge. She’s getting a line of beauty products, collaborating with Vera Wang on a wedding dress and Jeremy Scott on a capsule collection, and getting her own show at New York Fashion Week in February. For the show, 50 designers will produce life-sized outfits inspired by the doll — oh, to be a style icon. We’re curious whether the models who will walk in Barbie’s fashion show will all resemble her. If so, they’re going to have a hard time finding anyone, because even models don’t have her kind of proportions. Check out Barbie’s many, many, many looks over the years, after the jump… Keep reading »
New York Fashion Week ended on Friday after seven days of sometimes amazing — and sometimes hideous — clothes, a gazillion models, gallons of makeup, and a fleet of shiny black Town Cars filled with pretty young things. In case you were under a rock last week, here’s how it all went down…
J.Lo skipped out on judging the Project Runway shows. Tim Gunn made it work and filled in for her. We think his commentary will be better anyway.

The lack of black models on fashion runways and in ad campaigns has become a persistent issue in the fashion industry. The issue was most recently highlighted by Vogue Italia’s “Black Issue,” which featured only black models on its pages.
